Insurgent leader nabbed in Iraq raid
BAGHDAD - The shadowy leader of the Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaida-inspired group that challenged the authority of Iraq's government, was captured Friday in a raid on the western outskirts of Baghdad, an Iraqi military spokesman said.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was arrested along with several other insurgents in a raid in the town of Abu Ghraib
A lot of good news here. The Iraqi security people are getting good tips now, and many of the Sunnis seem to be turning against the terrorists. And, of course, another terrorist figurehead getting nailed.
